As a former Pre-Kindergarten teacher and now stay-at-home mommy of 2 boys and a sweet baby girl, many people ask me how they can be implementing educational concepts in the lives of their young children at home before they enter school. Instead of trying to come up with a quick list of ideas off the top of my head to answer these questions, I have decided to put all of my lessons into this blog. I, along with so many other parents, want to be purposeful at home with my children and make the most of the time I have with them.
I hope that this blog can help, encourage, and inspire you to work with your kiddos and
get involved in the learning process! The benefits will be endless,
and the moments you share together will be priceless! As Dr. Seuss once said,
"The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!"

Totally Technical Tuesday: Highlights Website

Technical Objectives:
* To explore the Highlights Website
* To learn educational concepts through this site
* To use the fine motor skills involved with browsing with and clicking a mouse

* Highlights Website
* Computer or iPad

* We love, love, love the Highlights magazine.  Sawyer's great grandmother got him a subscription to it last year for Christmas, and he looks forward to getting it in the mail each month. (Great gift idea if you're looking for one!)  The website is just as spectacular with lots of games and activities for all ages!

* Go to the Highlights Website, and let your child browse around.  Sawyer likes to go to the Highlights Kids pages and listen to stories and play games.  There are also pages for parents and teachers.  So many activities to choose from!  Have fun playing online!
